Developing an Advisory Board


An Advisory Board is an invaluable resource for planning and implementing your program for blind and visually impaired audiences.  

The module emphasizes practical considerations: how to review in-house resources and possibilities; how to select and organize members of your advisory board; and how to set short- and long-term goals. To help you plan and meet, we include checklists and agendas. To help you anticipate and answer questions from the Advisory Board and museum administrators, we include troubleshooting and funding tips.
